Charlie Jirousek was a talented, unique person who marched to his own drummer.  We met in my junior year at RHS in 1957 and remained close friends ever since.  When I blinded myself that year, he freely gave of his time and effort to help me get through high school.  We stayed close for the next six years, until I moved to Iowa to finish college.  After that we maintained a long-distance friendship.

During those six years we had many adventures together, ranging from night-time smelt fishing on Lake Superior, to late-night excursions to the Dinkytown music scene, to road trips, and to even building and flying huge kites that lifted us off the ground -- and many more too numerous to recount here.  

As we narrowed focus about our futures, Charlie went to work for one of the world’s finest guitar makers – Gibson – after earning his degree at the U of Minnesota Forestry School, while I went my way in university communications and academic management.

Conversations with Charlie were always a delight as he transitioned to self-employment as a gifted luthier who built, repaired and collected stringed instruments – including guitars, mandolins, and ukuleles – through his company Arrowhead Music in Safety Harbor, Florida. Once he told me his personal collection included more than 200 instruments.

I will greatly miss his free spirit and his loyal friendship.
